Yeah they were even talking about the crowds in the interview. I wish there was a Harry Carey interview with him now. I've always heard stories and watched short clips on him but that game was probably the most entertaining game I ever saw. I can understand now why so many people wanted to see him pitch. I don't think he was some phony trying to sell to a fanbase either, he seemed like a genuine kinda guy who didn't know how entertaining he was.
